I got this email from Save Coney Island:

Save
Coney Island had a press event July 26 to update the public on the City Council vote on July 29th and to encourage another round of phone calls
to the Speaker Quinn and all of the City Council members to keep Coney
Island for amusement. 


The current city plan cuts most of the zoned
amusement acres and rezones for high rise buildings.  With Kevin
Powell, Dick Zigund, Angie Pontani, Savitri D, Famous Bob, Rev. Billy, and other notables who want to enlist your help to Save Coney Island. 


Wednesday the Council votes to
cut amusement zoning from over 60 acres to less than 9, spelling the end of Coney Island as the peoples' playground.
